    How does Fantasmic at DHS compare to the one at Disneyland in CA? Our family has annual passes for Disneyland, so we have seen (and loved) the show many times. We want to streamline our WDW visit a bit, eliminating duplicate attractions.

    Hi Renee!

    This is a great question!  The two are very similar, but the actual shows and the experiences are different. At Walt Disney World, the show is performed in a custom built stadium for the show. There is a lot of stadium seating available and the views are great from most of those seats. You will find that a nice change from Disneyland. The show is also different, with some unique elements, but I feel the show in Disneyland is superior. 

    My advice is not to see it if you are pressed for time and what to experience other things unless you have never seen the show "well" in Disneyland or haven't seen it in a couple of years. Fantasmic is my favorite nighttime spectacular on both coasts, but of your time is limited I understand concentrating on more Walt Disney World unique experiences. 

    I hope this helps. Please write back with more questions.
